What is Atyla?
Atyla Ship Foundation is a charity dedicated to promoting life skills and raising awareness about their importance.
We offer adventure sailing trips to people of all ages, nationalities and backgrounds.
The adventure on board is fun and interesting, but also tough and full of challenges.
Our crew uses those challenges to help you step out of your comfort zone, get to know yourself better, and improve 8 skills that are essential for anyone’s life: Teamwork, Intercultural communication, Emotional intelligence, Critical thinking, Leadership, Responsibility, Courage and Resilience.
About the ship
Atyla is the only wooden ship of its kind that does adventure sailing trips internationally.
This unique vessel was made in the 1980s using traditional techniques (shipwrighting) with a design inspired by the sailing vessels of the 18th century. Today, it still belongs to the same family that built it.
About the project

Sources of funding
Outreach & social equality
At these festivals, where millions of visitors gather every year, we invite the public to visit the ship and discover the mission and the activities of the charity.
100% of our profits and monetary donations received, are put towards a Scholarship Fund that allows people with low income to also join our trips.
